Admin Professionals Week

Course Synopsis

The World has progressed tremendously in just the past 20 years.  The rise of SMART Technology (iPhone and APP Stores, SIRI etc) and Platforms (aka : Facebook, UBER, AirBNB)  has changed many office culture.

Office and administration roles are progressing too, with responsibilities that now look more like middle management than support staff. The recession and advancements in technology have both contributed to the evolution.  More companies turn to fewer administrative professionals to take on more specific duties and responsibilities.

Are you ready to embrace technology to maximize productivity and for the prioritization of tasks? Are you keeping up with times by acquiring new skills? Join us at this Personal Assistants/Administrative Professionals Master Class and progress to your Professional Career.

Team Dynamics @ Work

The modern Admin Professionals today (EA, PA) has to work with multiple parties to get things done and serve the bosses well.   This include typically very senior level executives to those lower in the rank and file.  The ability to work well with all and sundry is a critical success factor (CSF).

The truth is, there is an Art & Science to work with different personalities across different departments and outside the company.  Joseph will lead this interactive session by introducing the 5 Key Personality Types and how to identify them through the use of observations of them and by how they speak.  He will also introduce the Motivational DNAs and how to identify them and use your knowledge to successfully engage and motivate people to work better and to respond to your better.

When you sign up for this Master Class, you will also get a Login to do an Individual Personality Self-Assessment worth $138 and the results will be interpreted during the workshop as part of the learning of the various personality types.  You will be able to use the Login to let your “Boss” or “Partner / Spouse” to do the Assessment so that you will learn how to better interact with them.


About Joseph

Joseph LEE is the founder of the Team Building Dynamics Assessment Tool.  This tool allows companies to profile the Personality Strengths and Motivational DNAs of their team members to let the Team Lead / Manager in Charge / HODs lead and manage the team better using a Scientific Data Driven approach.

He has used this tool to lead both big and small scale team building exercises and train up managers on how to lead more effectively by understanding how their team members personality affect the way they interact and work with one another.  Leaders are also able to motivate the team better by understanding how their Motivation DNAs are wired.  This allow all leaders to be able to manage better with facts (hard data – the personality profiles for example) and lead well with art (soft science – how do you better communicate to various personality types now that you know what they are).

He has used this Tool to train up HSBC China 5 Regional Centers Staff, all the Prime Group Limited Retail Outlet Managers and HQ Staff, SingHealth team of Medical Professionals, and many more companies.  Culinaryon is also using Joseph’s Team Dynamics Tools as part of their Team Building by Cooking Program.
